Saturday, I met up with my friend Alice (her chosen English name) and her friend Matt (a Canadian from BC who I suppose is my friend now, too =P). Like any good meet up with friends, we started with food. Matt led the way to a good Bulgogi place and so off we went. (I don't know the address, but it was right at the start of the main strip of Insadong Street by the Paintbrush statue).
|On the threshold of delicious food!|
|Matt and Alice, ready for food!|
|A little blurry, but so good nonetheless. And so many side dishes!|
|Alice and I in the courtyard.|
|You can see how the floor is slightly slanted.|
After Insadong, we headed north to Bukchon Hanok Village, a residential area of Seoul that is made up of the older traditional style of housing. The buildings are beautiful to look at and I wonder if they are as nice to live in.
|Someone's front door. Many doors had Chinese Hanja written above, on or beside.|
|A corner shot.|
|This tree is over 300 years old. Naturally, we had to feel the energy and take a picture.|
|This little shop had a bench outside and since it is a lovely building, we took a picture, too. |
(Matt makes a wonderful selfie-stick.)
Sending my love and hugs back home. Happy last day of November!
